How health and wellness coaching works

Health and wellness coaches provide information, support, encouragement and accountability to help teens identify and reach their goals. Health and wellness coaches will guide your teenager rather than say what to do or how to do it. Coaches can help your teen make a plan, focus on positive results, and reach short-term and long-term wellness goals.

The coach will:

  • Help your teenager identify health and wellness goals
  • Work with your teen to create an action plan toward achieving those goals
  • Prepare your teen for potential roadblocks or barriers to reaching those goals
  • Help your teen stay on course and track progress toward personal goals
  • Assist your teen in challenging situations that arise, including moves, deployments and other disruptions to routines
  • Help your teen establish accountability measures and provide support each step of the way
  • Provide additional resources for making healthy behavior changes
  • Celebrate achievements

A parent must attend the first session with the teenager. That session will include the assessment and initial goal setting.
